As the day for its airing in the west draws near, we have the Robots in Disguise Official Opening (intro) available, thanks to Youtuber Gokai Jolt. It is very reminiscent of Transformers Animated with a quick spotlight on the main autobots.

And for those in anticipation of the show and its toys, we have a bunch of high definition galleries for the various figures available here.

What is it with Hasbro Studios and Transformers cartoon themes? Do they honestly think "generic action music" = "catchy theme song"? First Prime gets a boring tune and now RID gets an incomprehensible one. :roll:

This just means that Rescue Bots still has the best theme song of the three Hasbro Studios-made TF cartoons.

There's a tad too many sound effects. It disrupts the theme song, which does sound pretty good. I hope we see an isolated/instrumental version of that single track at some point.

Ugh, I agree. Transformers needs a fun theme song, not theme music. Especially stuff as boring as that. TFA was about as close as we'll get to a catchy redux of the original theme.

Wow that was some hot garbage! :SICK: I didn't watch the Prime series but for a few scene's here and there. But based on this new series versus the Prime series, Prime was way more impressive looking. I think the rings in the eyes worked in Prime but that's it, we got a new lame TF series in 2015...'nuff said! :VEHI:

Wow. Sabrblade and I are exactly on the same page about this.

I'd figure it would have to happen some time ;)

I liked Prime's opening.. and Animated for that matter... this sucks. LET ME GUESS, the next show's subtitle is going to be called MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE. HOW ORIGINAL...

Animated and Prime had themes/intro music that matched their tone. This though, if it matches the show then each episode will be a jumbled mass of video because that theme sounded like it was recorded on a dieing hard drive. I can't even make out the actual music over the weird noises and effects going on.

They seem to be going for Tron Uprising's style, with cel shading and lower framerate to giving it a sort of motion-comic look.

I did not like that about Tron Uprising, and I certainly don't like it here. You're right, it's a major step down from Prime.

If you ask me, it means they can now afford to put more effort into everything other than the animation, which seemed to be their Priority One for Prime, and everything else suffered in Prime because of that.

I disagree. Prime had great animation, but it also had a great story, characters, and music.

The animation was still the best thing about it. In my book, looks shouldn't trump story and characters. Those two should be the best things of all.

It would appear that the previous video is not entirely the right version of the opening.

Remember how certain episodes of Prime (and Rescue Bots) would sometimes play a shortened version of the theme song? That's what that video is.

This video here is what the full, proper version of the theme song is, an it sounds MUCH better:

Yeah that looks alright. Still uneasy about checking this series out, but I'll still try it.

I don't see what's off about it since it's the same team that did Prime.

That's kinda what makes me uneasy. Prime looked good, and each episode was alright, but it didn't really have a story, so much as it had several stories that were messily wrapped up in different parts of the last 13 episodes, or some that were forgotten altogether. The character design is something I can probably get used to.

Ah, now I see what's up.

I agree that the storytelling of Prime wasn't the best. Or at least, for its first season. Seasons 2 and 3 had better stories than the first, even if there still were some issues with them. I guess we can say that Animated spoiled us with its more serialized format of storytelling.

Though, the episodic format seems to be what's in these days since past interviews with the Prime crew had them explain that the reason they told the kinds of stories that could usually be wrapped up at the end of each episode was to prevent from alienating new viewers who's come into the show midway, and so viewers could easily jump right into the show at any point and watch any episode at any time without necessarily having to go back and catch up ones that they've missed.

I myself don't necessarily agree with their thinking since that kind of storytelling kind of defeats the purpose of having a progressive, ongoing narrative that spans multiple episodes, thereby making the act of following said narrative from start to finish less engaging since chapters wouldn't flow together as well as they would if they built upon each other. This is why the Omega Keys arc of Prime is probably my favorite portion of that show.

Conversely, I can let the episodic format of Rescue Bots slide since that show isn't on the same scale as the bigger kid cartoons and isn't intended to be as ambitious (even if that show does tend to sometimes go the extra mile in its storytelling, but that isn't meant to be its norm, so they're special cases).

This sounds like a completely different song. I really wish they found a way to work the "Transformers, More than meets the eye" lyric/musical motif in somehow. I think the last time that happened was in Cybertron? Perhaps it has to do with the lawsuit a few years ago?
